A hot and hazy afternoon in the hills of Air Itam in Penang isn’t exactly ideal.

But we nevertheless decided to wander around the grounds of Malaysia’s largest Buddhist temple – the Kek Lok Si temple built on the slopes of this hill.

Construction of this temple began in the 1890s, funded by a few Penang tycoons, and it was completed in 1905.

My favourite part were the colourful blooms along the pathways of the various temple complexes. Pictures I must share.
